Partnership Working


Much of our work is made possible by close partnership working with key sport and health organisations both locally and nationally. The landscape of education, sport and health are ever changing. This complex landscape demands that the School Sport Partnership remains well informed and ahead of the game to ensure that the best possible offer is given to the schools and young people of Leicester City.

We work closely with the local County Sport Partnership - Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport, Leicester City Council Sports Services, our Inclusion lead school Ellesmere College, Youth Sport Trust, National Governing Bodies of sport, Leicester City NHS, Professional Clubs and many other partners to ensure that opportunities for city young people are accessed and that schools are kept well informed with current developments.
